I agree with David concerning the use of the Spanish letters m.c.a. I may be misunderstanding something though and that is the following "pulgadas" should equate to "millémetros" and not to "metres", as they are vastly different (or I am being plain dumb this morning!!).

millimeters would then = mmCA/mmC.A./mmca.
